Product Description

Questar III’s Pre-kindergarten Program provides comprehensive child development services to classes of 16 children during the school year. Targeted toward children from lower-income families or experiencing risk factors, the program follows New York State Education Department (NYSED) regulations for pre-kindergarten programs. It is partially funded by a NYSED grant.

Note: Limited grant funding allows the program to be operated in only three districts. Qualifying districts may enroll in the program when a district currently enrolled in the program drops the service.
